Winnebago winners Joe and Judy Hale at Super Bowl

Winnebago Industries Inc. announced that Joe Hale, sales associate for McClain’s RV in Ft. Worth, Texas, was the winner of the company’s “Touchdown Diesel Sales Promotion.” Hale’s name was drawn from all of the dealer sales personnel who sold qualifying Winnebago and Itasca Class A diesel-powered motorhomes during the program period of Sept. 1 to Dec. 31. Hale and his wife, Judith, enjoyed a Super Bowl weekend in Indianapolis, attending pre-game festivities and the big game on Sunday courtesy of Winnebago Industries. “Thanks to Winnebago Industries, Judy and I experienced the trip of a lifetime,” said Hale. “We had an absolutely great time from the moment we arrived on Friday, with Saturday’s NFL Experience where we had the opportunity to interact with NFL personnel and throw passes, to the game itself on Sunday. Our Super Bowl tickets were unbelievable – 17 rows off the ground floor of the stadium – and the people were fabulous. With seven innovative floorplans, including the new 36M and 42QD, Winnebago said it has become the second largest Class A diesel manufacturer in the U.S., with market share more than doubling over the last four years. According to Statistical Surveys Inc., Winnebago’s Class A diesel market share grew from 8.1% in calendar year 2008 to 17.4% calendar year to date through November 2011.
